Up In the Light At Night

The Cape Hatteras lighthouse, that is.

A new feature at the lighthouse is the nighttime visit to the top of the light. Since the interior of the light isn't lighted - - which sounds paradoxical, doesn't it? - - the visitors have to carry flashlights to illuminate their way up the metal staircase (personally I think a hat-mounted headlight would be a wiser choice, along with a backup hand-held).

For those of you who live here in NC, it's a fine opportunity to experience something few people have (you people in other states are welcome, too, it's just a longer drive).
